Someone who knows me well gifted me with a three-month Birchbox subscription, and I just received my first box two days ago. I’m a little too new to the whole Birchbox thing to pronounce judgement upon it yet, but I’ll be sure to do so when my subscription is up.
One of the products inside was Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in a bright fuchsia. Not my normal go-to color, but I know that what the product looks like in the packaging doesn’t necessarily translate to what it looks like on your skin. This would be one of those times.
It went on without any real tackiness (which I LOATHE in a lip gloss) but not in a way that I would call slick, either. It was surprisingly thick in texture. It had a fair amount of shine, and not a whole lot of color. Even with the brightness, it barely made a color impact on my lips. It was impressively shiny, so I suppose if you wanted a medium amount of color and a lot of shine, two coats might do the trick.
The size of the gloss was actually minuscule, almost like it belonged on a charm bracelet, which is fairly insulting because it isn’t like I was getting the product for free. I’ve been given much bigger samples at the beauty counter and not had to pay a cent.
So, given the lack of color and the decision to provide such a small sample, I don’t think I will be purchasing this gloss any time soon.
